The Games Industry Conference, a new B2B event, will launch in the UK in February 2023, the organizers announced.  The show will be held at the Hilton Metropole Hotel, The NEC in Birmingham on February 13.  Planned elements include an exhibit hall, B2B programming, and open networking.  The show will be open (with paid admission) to people with a business interest in tabletop games, including publishers, designers, distributors, retailers, buyers, manufacturers, and logistics and fulfillment companies.

The show is a joint venture of the UK Games Expo, the largest consumer games show in the UK, and All About Games Consulting, founded by former Asmodee Head of European Distribuiton Daniel Steel and former Esdevium and Fantasy Flight Games executive Cedric Delobelle.

Retailer attendees are promised a freebie box after the show with sample games and product.
